The Scottish LGBT Committee is again supporting Glasgay!

2011 has been a momentous year of popular uprisings, revolutions and social change as well as the worldwide economic recession which has had a devastating effect on all of our lives.

It’s only one year since the Equality Act 2010 and we have still much to gain in this next decade. This year in a slightly more modest programme, we celebrate and question our "REPRESENTATION”.

We ask, are our identities, lifestyles, relationships, families and nuances of issues understood or effectively represented?

When some Church leaders still cry abomination; when opera companies can’t say “queer” and some think there are too many lesbians and gays on Coronation Street. Why do these things go unchallenged?

How do we get more effective representation? Members of the committee will be at various events and we are proud to be sponsoring the main event of the festival - Edwin Morgan's Dreams and Other Nightmares, directed by Liz Lochhead.

We would urge members and branches to support the event. The programme is available at www.glasgay.co.uk
